I have Redhat Linux  9.0 and  KERNEL: 2.4.20-6. i have got sound to work in XWindows and need to know where the soundcard is connected to. I am trying to run windows programs with WINE (http://www.winehq.org) and need to know where the sound card is connected.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help

Have a look at /dev/sound or /dev/audio. Or /dev/sndx where x is a number between & 10.

Thank youboth for quick answers, i have tried both and have found that /dev/dsp AND /dev/audio work. Maybe this is because i have 2 soundcards in my system?


Thank you both again
